Once in a while, I get excited enough about a book to buy it over Amazon. Meaning, I can't wait for it to arrive at Malaysia. Normally, that would take up to 3-4 months, or sometimes more. Since what I was eyeing is considered a 'technical book', I suspect it might take more time to be deemed worthy to be shipped in by our bookstores.
A few weeks ago, I spied that Bill Moggeridge of IDEO has a NEW book called 'Designing Interactions'. I checked at MPH, nope, not there. I scoured Kinokuniya, zilch. Nada. Ordering it with Kino would cost twice the amount of the published price at Amazon. SO, I did the next mad thing. I ordered it online.

Now that I have this thick, big, heavy (I mean it, HEAVY (2kg???)) tome of an inspirational publication about moving pixels on a screen, I'm gonna go crazy chewing it up.
To infinity and...the digital beyond!
(Erm, sounds familiar, nvm, it's all about interactivity for now)
